The clowns will be practically falling off the stage later this month in Miami when the Democrats officially kick off the primary season with the first of many debates in which America will have a chance to observe for themselves just how extreme that the party has become in only a few short years.
In an effort to prove that they are inclusive – despite the frontrunners being white – the party has accommodated socialists, race-baiters, kooks and cranks and ambitious shrews like Kirsten Gillibrand and at current count, there are just short of two dozen contestants for the grand prize of the 2020 nomination and a bludgeoning by incumbent President Donald J. Trump.
Following much speculation and consternation, foul-mouthed DNC boss Tom Perez and his fellow political racketeers have now narrowed the list of participants down.

Here are the lucky winners who made the cut:
- Joe Biden, former vice president
- Elizabeth Warren, U.S. senator from Massachusetts
- Bernie Sanders, U.S. senator from Vermont
- Pete Buttigieg, South Bend, Indiana, mayor
- Kamala Harris, U.S. senator from California
- Beto O’Rourke, former U.S. congressman from Texas
- Cory Booker, U.S. senator from New Jersey
- Kirsten Gillibrand, U.S. senator from New York
- Michael Bennet, U.S. senator from Colorado
- Amy Klobuchar, U.S. senator from Minnesota
- Tim Ryan, U.S. congressman from Ohio
- Eric Swalwell, U.S. congressman from California
- Tulsi Gabbard, U.S. congresswoman from Hawaii
- Jay Inslee, Washington governor
- John Hickenlooper, former Colorado governor
- Julian Castro, former secretary of Housing and Urban Development
- Bill de Blasio, New York City mayor
- John Delaney, former U.S. congressman from Maryland
- Andrew Yang, entrepreneur
- Marianne Williamson, spiritual healer
The bottom two-thirds have about as much chance as you or I of being elected POTUS and will not likely make it much farther.
Via Fox News:
Failing to qualify from the historically enormous field of declared Democratic presidential candidates are Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana; Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts; and Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam.
The thresholds for the first two rounds of debates – which will be held on consecutive nights on June 26-27 and in late July – were announced by the DNC in January. They include reaching 1 percent in three polls recognized by the national party committee, or receiving contributions from a minimum 65,000 unique donors as well as 200 unique donors in at least 20 states.
The candidates had until 11 a.m. ET on Thursday to certify with the DNC that they had reached either of the two thresholds.
The inclusion of unpopular New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio despite recent polls that showed him at less than one-percent are a real head scratcher as is Marianne Williamson but the refusal of Dems to follow the GOP format of having a “kid’s table” was nixed by sensitive snowflakes as being discriminatory.
The venue will be crackling with crazy but it’s really going to get good once the field has been reduced to Joe Biden and the seven zanies who will really scare the bejesus out of sane Americans.
